Greek Jewelry

Greek jewelry was usually made out of gold.  Jewelry worn by the Greek  included just the obvious bracelets, necklaces, and rings as well as golden armbands and circlets, which were worn around the head. 

This is a gold circlet, with lots of decorations, such as tassels. 

 

An armband shaped like a snake (Indian armbands were usually shaped like a snake also).

This is a typical necklace.

From left to right: necklace, circlet, earrings, bracelet, earrings, and ring.

 This is a bracelet.
